Quality of Life

Quality of Life in Greater Cincinnati is directly connected to our region’s population, diversity and safety.

The State of the Community uses 15 indicators to monitor different aspects of quality of life in our region. Knowing how our population is changing is vitally important to our region’s future. A growing and diversified population brings the potential for economic, political and social opportunities, including a larger labor pool and greater population diversity in terms of age, race and ethnicity. Transportation – having options to limit time spent traveling to work and/or to have greener transportation options available – can be a critical factor when choosing a community to live in. And a foundational element of quality of life in any community is the degree to which residents feel safe.
